Best of: Food:

There's not a whole lot of food in these shopping centers. The Village has everyone beat with Chili's, Wild Oats and the Dixie Cafe. The Dixie Cafe is excellent if you like southern food. There's an Olive Garden on the other side of the road, near Chili's and a Chuck E. Cheese in the same area. Damgoode Pies is always a good bet if you're looking for take-out.

Best of: Shops:

Pinky Punky and Barbara Graves are great shops, although Pinky Punky is more of a special occasion shop. You can't beat TJ Maxx for a bargain.

Best of: Entertainment:

Although I don't like the Looney Bin myself, lots of my friends do. I'll settle for the UA Breckenridge or better yet, go to Blockbuster and rent some movies.
